## How to Find the Midrange

In statistics, the *midrange*, or *mid-range*, is the arithmetic mean of the smallest and largest numbers in a data set. While the range is a measure of the dispersion of values in a data set, the midrange is a measure of center, or central tendency, of the data.

The midrange is not the most accurate indicator of the center of a data set since outliers in the data can significantly change its value. The more commonly used measures of center are the mean, median, and mode.

### Midrange Formula

Since the midrange is the mean of the smallest and largest numbers, the midrange formula is:

M = H + L / 2

Where:

M = midrange

H = highest number

L = lowest number

Thus, the midrange *M* is equal to the highest number in the data *H* plus the lowest number *L*, divided by 2.

**For example:** let’s find the midrange for the numbers [13,15,34,41]

lowest number = 13

highest number = 41

midrange = 13 + 41 / 2

midrange = 54 / 2

midrange = 27

The midrange of this data set is 27.
